Lightroom Classic: Custom crop

I might have missed something obvious, but I can't find a way (or a reference in the forum) to set a custom crop and add it to the list of crop aspect ratios available in Lightroom Classic. 

 

Is there a way to do that?

You basically go to Crop tool, ensure the Aspect Ratio is unlocked, click on the crop size (e.g. Original) to get the droplist of size options, then choose Custom to get a popup window asking for your desired crop size details. Once you save that, it gets added to the droplist of crop size options in round-robin fashion. I don't have the latest version of Classic, but v8.4.1 allowed saving up to three different custom crop sizes before the least-recently created one was removed if I wished to add a fourth.

That works, don't know why it didn't before must have done something different, but I have what I want.
